Ford Motor Co. is recalling 13 F-650 trucks in the 2016 model year to address a steering column issue, the company said.

These trucks were built with a steering column that uses the “park” position mechanism in the automatic transmission. But this park mechanism is at risk for fracturing if the truck is on a grade, loaded and the shift lever is in “park.” The result might be unintended vehicle movement.

The 13 F-650 trucks covered by the recall were built at the Ohio Assembly Plant from July 29 to Sept. 3 of this year. All are located in the U.S.

Dealers will replace the steering column and reconfigure the instrument panel at no cost to the customer.
